The Boring Company wants to deliver your car directly to your garage

The Boring Company, Musk's cutely-named tunneling startup, has received permission to pursue the construction of a vehicle elevator connecting the garage of a small, single-story home it purchased in Hawthorne, Calif., to the fanciful high speed subterranean "Loop" transportation system it is constructing under the street in front of it.

Hawthorne's city council approved the proposal on Tuesday night, with the members unanimously giving the project their approval.

Yes, a auto elevator that would take your vehicle from your garage on street level to a below-ground chamber that connects to the Boring Company's growing tunnel network. Thus, no commuter vehicles would be moving in and out of the garage from the street.

The idea would be that you'd not even need to drive to the end of your driveway to begin your commute: Your auto could be automatically dropped down and then carried along on an emissions-free, electric carrier to a bigger Boring Company tunnel. Cars would enter the tunnel from the SpaceX campus itself, move through the tunnel, onto the prototype garage, and then back to the SpaceX facility. Naturally, given the fact that the home the Boring Company has purchased is in an actual residential area, Hawthorne City Council's approval of the project came with a few stipulations.

"It's an important part of the longer-term vision the company is trying to build", said Boring Co representative Jane Labanowski.
